The one that I can't stand is a guy named Todd Schnitt who is out of Tampa, but supposedly is getting syndicated. He was in a stupid lawshit with Bubba the Love Sponge. Schnitt almost makes me dislike conservatives---that's how obnoxious he is. He had most of his career as a shock jock (MJ), now advocates conservative causes. He big time was pushing Romney. He had me so incensed that I called the show, ready to blast him for the Romney push, the making fun of anyone supporting someone not Romney. I had a doc appointment and had to hang up before they talked to me. He's absolutely obnoxious, but he shut his mouth after the election.
I listen to Beck because he offers up some unique perspectives. The preachey side, I can do without. But, IMO there is usually thought provoking substance there. And I live for their Al Gore bits!!!
I liked his TV show. No nonsense and his use of visuals was great. I loved his guests. His radio show, to me, is Howard Stern political talk. I'd rather listen to Wilkow.
Schnitt's other big offense is that he takes a news item and then comes up with a list of stupid "what ifs" or questions that he thinks are poignant and relevant. The truth is, intellectually Bubba The Love Sponge is Schnitt's total superior. Schnitt is getting syndicated, but I don't think he does the reading that one needs to do to be a good talk-radio host. You can't simply pull interesting news items off Yahoo and wing it. Medved, Praeger, Limbaugh, and Levin actually do the reading. Schnitt and Beck just babble and ask stupid questions.
When I first came to Florida, had never heard Schnitt, just knew that I didn't like him. If he's on, I change the station or just drive in peace and quiet.
